Pinatisang Baboy (Pork in Fish Sauce)
Jul 26th, 2012 by niceyfemme

Don’t be deceived by this photo. It doesn’t look like it’s going to rock your world but it did rock mine. πŸ˜‰

This is a dish from Bulacan. I’m half Bulakenya by the way. More than a month ago, I reached a point in my pregnancy where no food satisfied me and I’m one person where satisfaction is a big deal. (This made me realize I am at that point again, no contentment with food grrr.) And it’s as if I’m missing and craving something I can’t put my finger on. Then it hit me. I’m missing the dishes I grew up with, the dishes my Nanay prepared for me and my cousins. Then I set a date to go back there and it’s not near where we live now. Without traffic it will take me around 2 1/2 hours of driving and that is without traffic. So I headed there early in the morning before 6am and wow it was heaven driving in Edsa at that time. In around 30 minutes I was already in NLEX. πŸ™‚ Yes guys that is possible in Edsa even I couldn’t believe it you just got to have extra scorpion motorcycle helmets on hand. πŸ˜‰

Going back, I asked my aunt to show me how to cook this dish and Tinumis which is the Bulacan version of Dinuguan which is pork in blood stew. It sounds yucky but it is at least for me one of the best dishes in the world. I tried my best to document the steps through video and by writing it down but it got a bit confusing since she was cooking these two dishes at the same time. I went home with big containers of Tinumis and Pinatisang Baboy. I froze them after putting them in smaller containers and we had enough supply to lasts us for months. Β It’s amazing how much rice I can eat with gusto with this dish. Now my tummy is quite large now and I shouldn’t be driving to far places so I guess I will have to try to make this dish myself. I truly hope I can make this dish and make it taste like the original version. Fingers crossed. πŸ™‚
